A Curated Box of Thrift Store Finds – thredUP Goody Box

“Thrift shopping takes too much time.”
“I never find anything!”

These are just a few of the complaints I still hear about thrift shopping. I mean, I get it. Thrifting *can* feel like hours of digging to never find anything. Or sometimes it means dealing with a push crowd. I guess the same can be said for shopping at any store, but there just seems to still be an overall frustration some people associate with heading into a thrift store.

Well, I was super excited to hear the online thrift shop, thredUP, has a new service for people who don’t have the time or patience for secondhand shopping. I first blogged about thredUP back in 2009 when they first launched as an online clothing swap and to say they’ve come a long way is an understatement.

I wrote the book on how to thrift shop {literally!}, so any time something new comes around that’s meant to make secondhand shopping easier and more accessible, I’m down to share it.

It’s rare that I’m surprised. And it’s also rare that I shop online for clothing.
So when I bought a $7.25 dress from Amazon and was amazed at the fit and quality? Yeah, my mind was blown!

My favorite season is officially here and I couldn’t be happier. Though the cold shoulder trend isn’t new, it’s still going pretty strong. Cut outs, off the shoulder tops and more continue to be huge for spring and summer.
And I found a dress that’s embracing that trend on a dime!

Though I consider myself a thrift shopping pro {I wrote an entire book on how to thrift shop!}, thrifting can feel overwhelming if you’re new to the process. That’s why I love any strategy that makes your trip to the thrift store easier.
Well, this isn’t exactly a strategy per se, but a website. I finally tried swap.com, an online consignment and thrift shop and it’s pretty awesome!
